US Representative Matt Gaetz has had a very colorful career to be sure, but don’t go looking him up on Wikipedia anytime soon. It appears that the person who has hijacked that page is absolutely disgusted by both Gaetz and our president, Donald Trump. The articles written about Gaetz are absolutely astonishing, considering this is supposed to be a source where unbiased opinions are posted. So much for that.
Regardless, the point of this is that nowhere can a Republican get a fair shake, especially when he is 100% on the side of what’s right. In the legislative issues he has been involved, Gaetz is a reliable, solid Right-wing guy. In the eyes of the Fake News Industrial Complex, that’s a big negative, but from the point of view of the American voter, it is a major plus.
Representative Gaetz has come forward to insist that Special Counsel Robert Mueller be dismissed or step down from his job as an investigator in the Trump-Russia collusion investigation following all the revelations regarding his past involvement in the Uranium One deal where he was the sitting Director of the FBI!
Right Wing News:
Representative Matt Gaetz (R-FL) called for Robert Mueller to be fired in a speech delivered to the House of Representatives on Wednesday because of his “indisputable conflicts of interest.”
“We are at risk of a coup d’état in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Gaetz said. “That is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
“I join … in calling for Mr. Mueller’s resignation or his firing,” Gaetz continued.
Just last week, Mr. Gaetz proposed a resolution that says Mueller is a compromised Special Counsel. This is due to the fact that Mueller was serving as FBI director when the Russian company purchased uranium operations in the U.S in 2010.
“These deeply troubling events took place when Mr. Mueller was the Director of the FBI. As such, his impartiality is hopelessly compromised. He must step down immediately,” Gaetz publicly released in a statement on Friday.
The resolution has two co-sponsors, Reps. Andy Biggs (R-AZ.) and Louie Gohmert (R-TX). Both are members of the Freedom Caucus.
Gaetz didn’t stop there. He also pleaded for the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to “investigate the Clinton Foundation, the Uranium One deal and the Fusion GPS dossier.” These demands come on the heels of the first indictments to come about from the Mueller investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.
Gaetz is right, of course, however it does not appear that the course of action of the president is going to be that he fires the Special Counsel, for a number of reasons, not the least of which is that this investigation has yet to net a single shred of evidence of the collusion by the Trump campaign that Democrats have been insisting was committed for more than a year.
Another reason that Mueller will probably not be fired is that this would only give the Democrats false ammunition to fire upon the Oval Office with charges that the Special Counsel was “too close to the truth,” just like they did with the incompetent Comey. If Mueller ever gets to the actual real meat of this investigation (don’t hold your breath, though) we may even find that the Podestas and the Clintons, as well as the Obamas, were just as culpable as Manafort and Gates.
